    The state’s most powerful Republican secretly worked for months to help Democratic Gov. Cuomo win re-election — in exchange for Cuomo’s promise not to aid Senate Democrats in their Long Island races, a top New York GOP leader has charged. Former state Republican Party Executive Director Michael Lawler — who managed Rob Astorino’s ill-fated gubernatorial run against Cuomo — told The Post that he learned of the alleged bombshell deal between Senate GOP leader Dean Skelos and Cuomo just days ago, after suspecting for months that it existed. Lawler said he found out about the alleged Skelos-Cuomo arrangement from a...

    VIDEO OF AD AND INTERVIEW HERE Basically, Astorino (the GOP candidate for Gov) blast Cuomo for being a lying scumbag about guns. It won't matter much, as Cuomo is up 25 points in polls in NY (can you believe this?!) But it's nice to see an attractive, normal, loyal woman attack a lying Fascist like Andrew Cuomo.

    If Mr. Astorino is to realize his long-shot quest to defeat Mr. Cuomo, he must win over thousands more people like Mr. Stalaj: Democrats and unaffiliated voters willing to look past party label and social issues like gun control and abortion rights, over which Mr. Cuomo has been relentlessly hammering Mr. Astorino as an “ultraconservative.”

    The highly acclaimed school standards called Common Core are becoming so unpopular that they may soon be politically untouchable. The critics are piling on from Glenn Beck to the Wall Street Journal, with senior academics and activist parents in-between. The latest is a detailed criticism of the mathematics standards by a prize-winning math professor at the University of California at Berkeley, Marina Ratner. It is refreshing that her criticisms are very specific and include examples of assignments that parents can see are ridiculous. Professor Ratner became alerted to the stupidity of Common Core by looking at the homework assigned...

    Late last year the Republican response to who would run against the Cuomo juggernaut was “we will see if we can find someone with enough money to run”. Since that time no one with the resources has decided to take up as Chris Christie called “the lost cause”. But one man without the resources but the balls to take on Andrew Cuomo has emerged. Unless you live in the lower Hudson Valley you might not have heard of Rob Astorino.

    The chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) is refusing to campaign for the GOP's nominee for New York governor. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is heading the GOP's gubernatorial efforts across the nation, was campaigning in Connecticut when reporters asked him whether he would campaign on behalf of Rob Astorino in his race against sitting New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. According to Christie, the answer is a nearly-unqualified no.
  • Christie doesn't plan to campaign for Astorino, says he doesn't 'invest in lost causes'

    GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) -- Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday he doesn't have plans to campaign for New York's Republican candidate for governor because he doesn't campaign for candidates he doesn't think can win. Christie was in Greenwich, Connecticut, to raise cash for GOP candidate Tom Foley when he was asked whether he planned to spend any time campaigning in New York, where Republican challenger Rob Astorino, the Westchester County executive, trails incumbent Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo by a large margin in public polls. "You know, I will spend time in places where we have a chance to...

    Rob Astorino, the Republican candidate for governor of New York WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY, April 23, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Rob Astorino is in his fifth year as county executive of Westchester County, New York. And he says he's the right man for the job of governor of New York State, a position currently held by Democrat Andrew Cuomo. Astorino, who was recently in Washington to solicit support and fundraising dollars from the Susan B. Anthony List, defended the right to life in an interview with LifeSiteNews. He also criticized Cuomo, who said in January that conservatives "who are right to life...

    RYE BROOK - New York Republicans have officially nominated Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino (R) as their candidate in the race for governor. Republicans wrapped up their state party convention Thursday at the Hilton Hotel in Rye Brook after nominating Astorino. Other candidates nominated include Onondaga County Comptroller Bob Antonacci for comptroller and chief of staff to former Gov. George Pataki John Cahill as attorney general. Astorino says his success in Westchester shows he can appeal to all kinds of voters in heavily Democratic New York. In his acceptance speech, Astorino called for hydraulic fracturing for natural gas and the...

    New York's gubernatorial race got its first declared GOP candidate on Wednesday in the form of Rob Astorino, the Westchester county executive who announced via Web video that he would challenge Gov. Andrew Cuomo in this year's election. "I'm tired of listening to the fairy tale that everything is just great when it's just the opposite. I'm tired of watching New York's decline," Mr. Astorino said in the six-and-a-half minute video. Mr. Astorino, 46 years old, emerged as a likely contender after winning re-election in November in heavily Democratic Westchester with 56% of the vote. The former radio host, however,...

    Republican Rob Astorino will announce the first week in March that he will run for governor of New York. The Westchester County executive is expected to make the announcement March 3 or 4 along with his agenda on "eight key issues," the New York Post is reporting. The decision to enter the race came after receiving promises of at least $15 million in campaign contributions and more to come, if he can tighten the race between himself and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is expected to have $40 million in the bank for his re-election bid. "There'll be a...

    ALBANY >> With his re-election campaign underway, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is riding high in the polls, but don’t tell that to Assembly member Steven McLaughlin, his self-described loudest critic. “I would point to a multitude of problems, but I think overwhelmingly he’s a bully,” McLaughlin said last week. “He acts that way and it’s catching up with him.” McLaughlin, a Rensselaer County Republican, compared Cuomo to Hitler and Mussolini after the SAFE Act gun law was pushed through the Legislature in January 2013, later apologizing for a poor choice of words. A year later, he says voters in his district...

    Although much attention was focused on the elections on Tuesday of decidedly left-of-center Democrats in Boston and New York City, little reported was the major gain of Republicans in two Northeastern states long considered "no man's land" for the GOP. Republicans took considerable new ground in contests for city halls and county offices in New York and Connecticut. In New York, Republicans re-elected county executives in Westchester and Nassau Counties, captured the mayoralty in Binghamton and a majority of the county legislature in Erie County for the first time since 1977, and won a special election for the state Assembly...

    Gov. Cuomo has secretly joined with former US Sen. Alfonse D’Amato and other top Republicans to stop Democrat Tom Suozzi from recapturing his old job as Nassau County executive, key Nassau Democrats angrily charge. Cuomo, who has yet to endorse Suozzi two weeks after Suozzi’s victory in the Democratic primary, has taken several important steps to strengthen Republican incumbent Edward Mangano, including firing his leading critic, the Democrats say. D’Amato, a lobbyist with multiple clients who, as senator, was credited with leading the effort that defeated then-Gov. Mario Cuomo in 1994, has emerged as “an important player in Cuomo’s re-election...

    Westchester lawmakers actually put aside partisan infighting and election-year politicking when they joined together in a fight against the federal government over funding it pulled from the county. The Board of Legislators on Monday agreed to back County Executive Rob Astorino in a proposed lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development over $7.4 million the agency stripped from the county because of differing interpretations of the 2009 affordable housing settlement. It's about time the two branches came together in this ongoing standoff. And it's the right thing to do for the county. In approving legal action, Westchester's...
